CENTRAL POINT, Ore (AP) -- Federal agents have confiscated a second major haul of medical marijuana from Southern Oregon.
The government says medical marijuana grown in Oregon is being sold on the black market.
The Medford Mail Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/plfqHf ) that Drug Enforcement Administration agents, accompanied Wednesday by local officers, took at least four dump trucks of marijuana from a Central Point property belonging to a medical marijuana provider.
Last week, agents seized more than 400 plants in Gold Hill.
Both towns are in Jackson County, which has the second largest number of medical marijuana cardholders in Oregon. Multnomah County, with Portland, is first.
The U.S. attorney's office says search warrants for the two raids remain sealed.
